The Greene County Commission approved the purchase of the old Consumer Credit Union building at their meeting on Monday.

The cost is $425,000 for the 7,445 square foot office space and 13.24 acres of real estate. The plan is to use it for the Election Commission and the Greeneville/Greene County Emergency Management Agency Office.

The current Election Commission office building, which also houses EMA, has an equipment storage issue, lack of parking and needs repair.

According to Building Official Tim Tweed, the old CCU building is in good shape.

Greene County Mayor Kevin Morrison said that proceeds from the sale of the current Election Commission building would offset the costs of the new building. He also stated that there is significant interest in the current election building.

The Commission approved the purchase 18 to 3, with Brad Peters, Lyle Parton and Butch Patterson voting against.
